Should You Suggest Hornsent Or Thiollier To Leda

Helping Needle Knight Leda in Elden Ring

During Needle Knight Leda’s questline in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree, one of the most challenging decisions you’ll face is suggesting either Hornsent or Thiollier to Leda. This critical moment occurs after Miquella’s Great Rune is broken, prompting Leda to question the loyalty of Hornsent and Thiollier towards “Kindly Miquella.”

As a key ally, it’s up to you to advise Leda on choosing between Hornsent or Thiollier. Your decision could potentially eliminate a threat to Miquella and his loyal followers. Each choice comes with its own set of consequences, so it’s essential to make an informed recommendation. To help you navigate this decision, we’ve crafted a guide to assist you in choosing between Hornsent and Thiollier in Elden Ring.

If you suggest Thiollier to Leda, she will dismiss the suggestion as Thiollier’s loyalty to St. Trina (and therefore Miquella) is unwavering. Thiollier poses no threat in this scenario.

On the other hand, suggesting Hornsent to Leda may lead her to consider the recommendation, but ultimately she will decide to eliminate Hornsent after careful deliberation. Alternatively, if you choose not to suggest either NPC, Leda will still target Hornsent as the perceived main threat.

After suggesting Hornsent, you will need to make a critical choice of siding with either Hornsent or Needle Knight Leda. Bear in mind that the NPC you do not support will be eliminated, along with any associated quests with them. Upon reaching the Shadowkeep, you can summon and aid either Hornsent or Leda in a boss battle.

If you assist Leda and eliminate Hornsent, you will receive various rewards including Falx, Caterpillar Mask, Braided Cord Robe, Braided Arm Wraps, and Soiled Loincloth. Additionally, resting at the Site of Grace and conversing with Leda will grant you a Lacerating Crossed-Tree Talisman. Alternatively, choosing to side with Hornsent and defeating Leda will earn you Ash of War: Swift Slash and Leda’s Rune (40,000 Runes). You will also have the option to summon Hornsent for the boss fight against Messmer.
